We then decorated our muffins using butter icing and edible flowers

How to make the Butter Icing

  • 4oz (100g) Icing Sugar
  • 4oz Butter
  • a few drops of water
  • 2 drops vanilla essence

Soften the butter by mixing it in bowl gently add the icing sugar and mix, add the vanilla essence, depending on the consistency of your icing (it should be thick bt easy to apply to cakes) add a few drops of water if it is too thick and wont apply smoothly.

We also used simple icing mixing the icing sugar with a drops of water, a drop of vanilla essence and mix thoroughly, the icing should just coat the back of a spoon.

Have fun baking these lovely cup cakes
